Scion FR-S Concept – Click above to view videos after the jump

Concurrent with its debut at the New York Auto Show, Toyota has released two videos (one long, one short) of the Scion FR-S Concept. While neither of them show the "friggin' really sweet" Scion in motion, you do get a tantalizing glance at the promised front-engine, rear-wheel drive coupe's spectacular Lexus LF-A-aping curves.

In true car porn fashion, there's no curve left unexplored, and there's more than one longing look at the concept's lewd 20-inch centerlock wheels and massive 18-inch carbon ceramic brake rotors. There's no indication how much of this will actually make production, but we can almost guarantee Toyota will have ditched the 18-inch brakes by the time the 2.0-liter four cylinder-powered FR-S goes on sale, whenever that is. Check out both videos after the jump.

      The production car is basically there - take away the 18 inch rotors, 20 inch wheels, and the rear bumper, and side mirrors. instead itll have actual mirrors, a real bumper, 18 inch wheels, that scion backlight may mor may not be there...shrug

      tone it down just enough to get it into production and it could be the 240z of this generation lets keep our fingers crossed

      its pretty as hell, if they made it exactly like that they would crush, CRUSH most competition. But sadly they are scion, they make interesting concepts and kill them.

      Please, please, PLEASE don't let the giant "SCION" light up and/or act as the center brake light on the production version. That would be VERY tacky. Other than that... beautiful car!

      This is the kind of car Scion should have launched with.

        Why? Chevy isn't doing anything with them... they had their chance with the Solstice and blew it. I say bring it!

        You're not in autoblog green Dan - nobody here cares what you think with your auto-extremism.

        Yeah, it should be made from carbon composite and be all electric. To keep it affordable and practical hey?

      Am I the only one that's bothered by the squished aspect ratio of these videos?
